Hope you don't mind but I made a arm for the Creality CR-10S to use with this case. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3040052

OctoPrint Raspberry Pi Rig 3.5 PiTFT Touch Display - Mod for CR10s
Comments deleted.

For whatever reason I cant close shut the Pi+Adafruit TFT with this enclosure, the upper left corner keeps opening (having the USBs looking to the right), I even tried to cut the peg that keeps the Pi in place but still wont help....

What about a version with screw in screw holes instead of pegs? :)

EDIT: I did print it at 99% and 101% scale and it didnt help either.


I know about this issue i had similar problems.
It's not coused by the pegs that hold the PI.
The closing Design just isn't very reliable.
I already thought about replacing it with screw holes but I curently do not have enough time for that.
Howewer I will try to do this in the next month since I see that my design is getting very popular and keep you updated .
If you would like to modify it by yourself I have uploaded the source file so you can try to fix it with fusion 360
(if you do, don't foreget to share it ;) )

Hey @DS_Soko!

I actually remixed a mix of yours and adafruit's original post into something that worked nice!

I also flipped the connectors side, makes more sense to me to feed the USB (and Ethernet) from the left and power from upwards and to the left. ;)

Raspberry Pi 3.5" PiTFT Display Mount for Prusa MK2S

Hey @bolsoncerrado
Wow cool I really like your design !
It definitely has some improvements.
I will try to modify my design as well as soon I have time for that and maybe add some of your features .

It would be nice if you could add my Project to your remix source files so other people are able to find it more easily hier.
Thanks for sharing ! :D

OK cool lemme see if I can do that! Thanks!

Where do you mount your camera?

I'am using a modified Version of this mount: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1646474
with an wide angle lens (PI CAM 2)

What's that space on the arm I want to print it for an a8

The space on the arm was meant to clip to the small cube on the bottom of the case this did not really work.
Instead i just sanded the cubes a bit so they fit togehter with the arms and glued it in place.

Which touch screen did you use? would this one fit?

I used this one :
but the original one from adafruit ( https://www.adafruit.com/product/2097 ) will also fit perfectly.
You can probably use every 3,5 inch Display that uses the GPIO pins of the Rasppery pi.

if you still not sure just send me the link
